No More No Reply Comment Emails!

Nothing breaks my heart more, than when I get an amazing comment I can't reply back to!
I try to email most everyone back who leaves me comments on my blog, and especially like to follow your blogs back so I can read your lovely posts too!

BUT, several of you have "noreply-comment@blogger.com" when I try to reply to your comment. (and I'm guessing, you probably don't even realize it!)

I encourage you to go and connect your email to your profile ASAP because it helps you really connect to the blogging network even more. Emailing between bloggers helps you develop relationships with other bloggers.. and it really can make the world of difference in the blogosphere. ;)

So HOW do you fix it?!
1. go to the Blogger Dashboard
2. click edit profile 
3. look in the privacy section. 
4. Click the box that says show my email address
5. In the identity section enter your email address 
6. Scroll down and click Save Profile
Also, several of you have it where I can't see your blog address on your profile :( And I always love to follow back my new followers! So if I'm not following you, please please pleeease leave your blog address in a comment! I would love to read your posts, since so many of you read my ramblings each day!
Peace and Blessings!
Now go update your profile so I can reply to these comments!! :)

Ditto! I'm posting a link to this brilliant post on my blog later this week.

Stephanie said...

So this has nothing to do with your post BUT! I just realized we have so much in common. :)

I cannot thank you enough for your sweet words! They definitely had an affect on me, and I wrote my first come back blog tonight! PS, I've caught myself up on some of your posts, and I can't wait to see more. Your brownies and ice cream definitely made me feel better about the strawberry cheesecake milkshake I had tonight! So great to see you making sure you can write back to your readers. :)

How do you comment back via email? I've been trying to set this up for my blog and can't figure it out.

Hi Leslie! I have been following for blog for a while but I don't think I've ever commented, so in light of this post now I am! First off, I LOVE your blog! I live in Ireland, but I have this strange love of all things 'southern' too so I love reading about life down south. I really can't wait to visit some southern states one day.
You seem like such a sweet girl, I'd really like to get to know you better as I think we share a lot of similarities!

Barbara :-)

Mind if I copy this for my blogpost? I'll link back to you, because I feel like I've been getting three of no-replies a day! It's so frustrating! Thanks for putting the how-to! XO

Clara Gregg said...

I am a new follower of your blog and also to the blogging world. I have to say that I love the sheer honesty you post. I will definitely be reading more of what you have to say! God Bless!

I LOVE This post!! So much so, I looked forward in my posts, picked a day I knew I wouldn't be able to post... and scheduled a link back to your blog! You seriously took the words right out of my mouth! I love reading a great comment, hitting reply in my email and sending off a response... otherwise I feel like an absolute brat if I don't send some sort of reply!

Hope you are having a great night!!!


Kate said...

AMEN! I started replying in the post since Blogger allows for that now, but then I feel like it's pointless because they probably don't even see it! I was a no-reply blogger for an embarrassingly long time, but once I fixed it blogging definitely changed for me.

Yes, yes, please! Great advice.
